6:18pm
the 40s and 50s, some limited peeks of sun, same deal in the afternoon, partly to mostly cloudy with highs in the low 60s and east winds at 5 to 10 miles per hour. so the weather alerts remain green despite the chance for an overnight into early morning shower wednesday with a high of 68 and all the way up to 72 on halloween thursday, a slight chance for a shower as this big storm system makes its way toward us. in the first alert seven-day forecast 70 degrees on friday. this is the day where we'll see the bulk of the rainfall, maybe even a thunderstorm friday, before that front sweeps through, a lingering shower saturday with a high of 63 and then the day where daylight savings time will end on sunday, partly sunny skies, 60 degrees. looks like it's a mostly dry

6:23pm
here. what did happen is the judge decided to release both chris brown and his bodyguard on their own recognizance. chris brown needs to check in with his parole officer in california in person within 48 hours. that parole officer, of course, responsible for making sure that chris brown fulfills the terms of his release after his savage beating of rehannah. chris brown -- rihanna. chris brown came into the courtroom seemingly calm. his bodyguard was next to him. there was a huge number of family members of chris brown, crazy scene down in the courtroom. the marshals told people they couldn't come in. chris brown's mom was told she couldn't come in. there was some negotiation. she finally came in, did not see them interacting at all, but you can bet that just in a few minutes chris brown will walk out the back, big hug for
6:24pm
his mom. so that's the scene down here at the courthouse at this point. the story remains a little conflicted. apparently some kind of fight saturday morning outside the w hotel according to the alleged victim. chris brown said i'm not into that gay -- i won't use the word stuff. i'm into boxing and he punched this guy in the face. he said it was all about him simply jumping into a picture that some women were taking with chris brown. according to chris brown's entourage and what he allegedly told the police, the guy was trying to get onto his tour bus. so that's what we have here. let's take it back to you guys. >> you said the judge releaseed them on their own recognizance. do we know why the charge was dropped from a felony to a misdemeanor? >> reporter: assault has a lot
6:25pm
of different areas. he had a broken nose and had to go to the hospital and according to him he has to go in for surgery, but apparently after looking at this the prosecutors decided this was much more a simple assault than a more intense felony assaulted, but it's not clear to me exactly what the implications will be with that difference in terms of his parole situation in california over that rihanna thing, but it took them a while to work this out. i may be able to get you the information on the charging documents here. well, here's the police report. the charging documents are in the back, but i tell you they took hours and hours, the prosecutors, to put this paperwork together and finally send it back up here to the courthouse. we were expecting this hearing to actually take place at about 1:00 and here it is what, 6:27?
6:26pm
it finally just happened. >> it's certainly a media circus outside. you can see all the trove of cameras there. what was chris' demeanor like when you saw him? >> reporter: here's his lawyer and he's just coming up to the mic. he hasn't started speaking yet. this is danny onerato and we're expecting him to give us some information. >> what was chris' demeanor like? >> reporter: we'll have that coming up at 7:00 i'm told by the producer. back to you. >> thank you, bruce. we got to go. our time has run out. >> we'll have more on this at 7:00. thank you so much for watching and, of course, stay with wusa9 for the cbs evening news next.
